looking for spray
aside from the usual bolt on i am not too interested in really getting into the engine just yet to make some real power. I was however looking to get some spray and i was looking for some input on a safe shot. I am not looking to spray often or even once in a while but i was told that the ls1 is only going to be able to handle a moderate shot two or three times before blowing the engine. I don't necessarily believe him but i thought it would be best to go to the experts here. I'm just looking for that little extra edge incase i need it. Any recommendations for a brand or set up would be very much appreciated. thanks

I'm not an expert by any stretch on nitrous but from what I've seen you can run nitrous over and over and over. At least a 150 shot can be used I think you just need to get a tune to make sure it's safe. I'm sure someone can chime in about all the accessories you'd need.

The motor will take 150HP all day long on a safe tune. Take a look around the forums for more info. Let us know if you have questions.

allthough a tune is very important its not the only thing you'll need to run a 150shot safely. a good fuel pump and injectors are essential in preventing low pressure problems commonly associated with stock pumps/injectors on that high of a shot. if ya want to spray 75-100shot than as long as the pump/injectors are in good health, you'll be fine.
we offer a wide variety of kits to choose from. you can browse our website for the products or feel free to give us a call and we can discuss your plans/future mods etc. to help you decide on what to get. let me know if ya have any more questions.

Just stating, I ran the 150 shot for a full season on a stock pump and injectors. Again, if the tune shows your A/F and inj. duty % is ok, then you're ok. You can bump your fuel pump and injectors if you're unable to hold within acceptable ranges.
Definitely look up HSW though. They were a huge help when I purchased my system last year.
Just my $.02...

100% agree with you on the Tune and injector duty cycle part.

So many people come in looking for a simple, quick, cheap answer. I did too come to think of it when I first went to the spray. Matt was a great help!
Now I've gone and installed 42# Lucas injectors and trying to man up for the Racetronix FP install... all because my inj duty was over 90% @ WOT on motor after installing the Kooks headers this spring.
